AGI Releases 2017 Directory of Geoscience Departments
Contact: Carolyn Wilson (
The American Geosciences Institute is pleased to announce the release of the Directory of Geoscience Departments, 52nd Edition. 
The Directory of Geoscience Departments is the premier guide to geoscience organizations worldwide and is a vital resource for thousands of scientists, policymakers, publishers, students, and the general public. The 52nd Edition provides listings of nearly 2,000 university departments, museums, federal agencies, geological surveys, and research institutes.
For this new edition, individual faculty and staff members were able to edit their personal information and provide more specificity regarding their research and teaching specialties. Approximately 3,000 faculty and staff took advantage of this opportunity to enhance their listings, making this newest version of the Directory even more informative than before and a must for professionals and students alike.
This edition also includes an updated title list of theses and dissertations completed by U.S. and Canadian students, starting in 2014. This feature is generously provided by AGI's GeoRef Information Services.
The new edition is $42.00 ($32 for members of one or more AGI member societies; must purchase directly from AGI). Now available from or direct from AGI.
ISBN 978-0-913312-85-8
